In 2010, Victoria and Dani met on the dance team at the University of Toronto. They soon became Co-Captains of the dance team and brought the team to new heights. They were both passionate about bringing people together behind a cause and began organizing fundraising events while finishing up their undergraduate degrees at U of T.
What started as a small, community-based arts event while in University, evolved with them as they dove headfirst into their professional careers.
Dani and Victoria had a vision to celebrate entrepreneurship in a unique way and give back to local charities. Their hope was to bring the entrepreneurial community together to connect and celebrate one another.
In 2016, they put on the first-ever MOGUL Awards (formerly the City MOGULS Runway Show), celebrating Canada's top entrepreneurs in a runway show for Canadian Charities. Their goal was to revolutionize business events into a fashion-forward, entertaining, impactful experience, and give back while doing it. To date, City MOGULS raised over $150,000 in support of Canadian Charities.
Today, with a network of over 6000 entrepreneurs and growing, what started as one event has now blossomed into a thriving, supportive, and empowered community of entrepreneurs and leaders.
Through year-round programming, mentorship, events, and membership, we are fulfilling our mission of celebrating, connecting, and educating entrepreneurs into the next generation of powerhouse leaders.
10 years later, we're still the same girls, passionate about bringing people together and making a difference in the world.
